12 Dec All Points adds James “Jim” Bridenstine, former NASA Administrator, to growing Advisory Board
MERRITT ISLAND, FL, December 12, 2022: All Points Logistics, LLC (All Points), a diversified technical services company serving the space and defense industry, today announced former NASA Administrator James “Jim” Bridenstine has joined the All Points Board of Advisors. In this role, he will assist the leadership team in developing its business growth strategy and customer relationships while helping to launch the company’s new launch support service, Space Prep.
Mr. Bridenstine served as NASA Administrator from 2018 to 2020, launching the agency’s Artemis human lunar exploration program to land American astronauts on the Moon by 2024. Bridenstine also led efforts to launch American astronauts once again on American rockets, establish the Commercial Lunar Payload Services Program to land rovers on the lunar surface, and continue commercial resupply of the International Space Station.
“I am very excited to join the growing All Points team,” said Bridenstine. “I believe All Points has a great business model and talented management team that uniquely positions it to capitalize on key opportunities in the changing space industry. As the industry evolves toward increased launch cadence, greater commercial usage, and an increasingly contested space environment, I see Space Prep as a compelling solution for the specialized services and infrastructure essential to future space missions.”
Prior to his tenure at NASA, Bridenstine represented Oklahoma’s First Congressional District in the U.S. Congress. More recently, Mr. Bridenstine also served as Senior Advisor at Acorn Growth Companies, a middle-market private equity firm focused on aerospace, defense, intelligence, and space investments.
“Jim’s extensive background in the space industry, government, and capital markets is perfectly aligned with our overall growth strategy,” said Phil Monkress, All Points CEO. “We are thrilled to have such a highly respected and experienced expert on our advisory team.”
All Points’ new Space Prep launch support service will provide an integrated, comprehensive suite of facilities and services needed to efficiently and affordably prepare spacecraft of all sizes for launch at the nation’s major launch sites.
